January is often time when we come up with resolutions for a new year. While it is easy to decide that we want to change something, change will not happen unless we start doing something differently.
That’s why, like in the past years, I prepared for you post with suggestion regarding skills which will be useful for process professionals.
Chances are you have big plans for this year. But how to make those plans turn into reality?
Even brightest idea does not transform into results without:

As in previous years I prepared for you answers from experts about hot skills for process/automation professionals.

One of my favorite was the one of Theseus who defeated the Minotaur. To do so he had to enter the dangerous Labyrinth created by Daedalus. He would not make it without help from Ariadne as she gave him instructions and the thread, so that he would not get lost.

What will make the difference? Having some guidance on what to do and proper tools supporting the Digital Transformation.
